MARIELLE DADDONA

I am trained in and utilize a variety of evidence-based techniques including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Mindfulness techniques. Therapy may look different for each individual client. I like to involve the individual in their treatment planning process and tailor the techniques I use to fit each person.
